Artist Chad Farnes takes a non-traditional approach to his art, using only duct and masking tape to create his images. This painstakingly slow process involves layering strip upon seemingly insignificant strip of tape, which produces stunning images of the national parks. His goal in Tape•ography is to explore the intersection between humanity and federal land preservation. He questions what exactly is preserved with the creation of a national park. Is it simply to protect an endangered species or a spectacular vista that otherwise could not be enjoyed? Or is the purpose of national parks to preserve the wild that exists in each of us that otherwise could not be explored?
Veteran artists Kristina Lenzi and Darryl Erdmann exhibit their works together in the exhibition Counter Points. Both are abstract artists, but each finds a different source of inspiration for his or her work. Lenzi is inspired by her Muppet muses Kermit the Frog and Yoda. In Lenzi’s imagination both Kermit and Yoda are influenced by the work of abstract artist and color theorist Wassily Kandinsky and also the mesmerizing beauty of Miss Piggy. The results are happy, colorful paintings.
In contrast, Darryl Erdmann’s work explores the deep passion he has for space, color, line, and their relationship to life. His paintings explore the meaning of openness, closure, and how people react subjectively to them. He creates an open space that helps remind viewers of peace, communication of who we are, and lend understanding to our existence. He believes his paintings also give definition to our everyday lives.
The artists will present a gallery talk about their work on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m.

Expect the Great is a college and career awareness conference targeting members of the African, African-American and black communities,” said Betty Sawyer, transition programs and partnerships coordinator. “The conference’s purpose is to provide information, resources and other support to increase college participation, retention and graduation.
